Checkendon Challenge October 2017 Review

We’re back from another corking round of the Checkendon Challenge. The event was run to perfection as always, and it is hands-down the best bikejor course we’ve ever done…I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet it’s also the best in the UK if you like more technical trails.

This trip was a little different for us, lead girly Saskia had a heat-spot break out a week before, and under the vets’ advice opted to leave her home to rest up. That meant it was just Nanuq and myself going, with the team #2 getting a chance to show what he can do.

He did not disappoint! The course changes a little sporadically between events, so I cannot say for certain that this was a net-fastest, but it was certainly close. Saturday felt fantastic, Sunday a little weaker…but low and below…we got identical times, for both days!? I don’t even know how that’s possible, but here’s the video to prove it:

The organisers very kindly allowed us to pop a camera down at the start line to grab footage of everyone on their way. Here are all the bikejor and scooter competitors from Saturday:

And most of the canicross class from Saturday (sorry, battery died before the end!)

That’s all for now, be sure to check out the Checkendon Challenge on Facebook, and a huge thanks and appreciation to the organisers as always.
